Autumn Table On a Budget

Pat challenged herself this week to do an attractive and serviceable Autumn table using only inexpensive dinnerware and accessories. Using everything that we have already used previously, she "redesigned" a Fall table:
The "budget" table

Flatware is "Sophia" by Hampton Forge. Pat found it on sale at Tuesday Morning several years ago.

We found this heavy dinnerware on sale at our local grocery store. The other colors sold out right away - no one wanted "Sage Green" - Pat saw the potential and loved the price......

Who doesn't love the Dollar Store green glasses???

Both the candles and the candle holders were purchased at "after Christmas" sales last year

More Dollar Store finds.....

From the other end of the table

Here's where it came from:
Placemats - by Benson Mills from Ross (found on the "sale" shelf - less than 50 cents each)
Sage Green Dinnerware - on sale at our local Supermarket (no pattern)
Glassware - from the Dollar Store
Pumpkin Colored Napkins - Handmade by Pat
Napkin Rings - PVC pipe cut into rounds and spray painted
Flatware - "Sophia" Dark Green by Hampton Forge on sale from Tuesday Morning
Glass Leaf Tea Light Holders - from the Dollar Store two years ago
Dark Green Glass Candle Holders - on the sale shelf at Pier 1 (around a dollar a piece - reduce several times)
Candles - from Michael's at the After Christmas sale last year
Centerpiece Vase - from a rummage sale (25 cents and then spray painted taupe)

We will be joining the following Blog Parties this week:
"Table It!" at Rustic & Refined:
"What's It Wednesday" at Ivy and Elephants:
"Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch:

  1. This table is so lovely you would never know all of the items are budget pieces. I am partial to autumn colors and love that sage green dinnerware. I can't imagine why no one wanted it, and wish my grocery store had carried it (not that we need any more dishes!).
